In the course of history, men with facial hair have been ascribed various attributes such as wisdom and knowledge, sexual virility, masculinity, or high social status; and, conversely, filthiness, crudeness, or an eccentric disposition, such as in the case of a bum, hobo, hippie or vagrant. In many cultures beards are associated with nature and outdoorsmen.//wikipedia

An accordion soaked in Chianti
"I am this guy. I am speeding alongside the Mediterranean with a young Sophia Loren by my side. My only job is life and love, both of which I am quite good at. I make more money in my sleep than you can in a life time. The ladies love me and I get to love them all back. The term jet set was made just to classify my fabulous lifestyle. I am nothing like you, though you wish to be me."
Zmitser von Holzman‘s A Beard Like a Bird (Zimmer Records) is like listening to an acoustic guitar washed in the technicolor of the Italian seashore and an accordion soaked in Chianti. If A Beard Like A Bird doesn’t put you in the frame of mind above, there may be something quite wrong with you.
